Protect the online privacy of Massachusetts residents

This petition had 151 supporters

The US Senate and House of Representatives recently passed legislation that strips away the online privacy rights of US citizens. This act, which removes protections put in place by the FCC last year, would allow ISPs to track which websites their customers use and sell that information to third-parties for marketing purposes. Even worse, it prohibits the FCC from reinstating these rules at a later date. Despite this clear violation of privacy, President Trump has already indicated he will sign this legislation into law. 

We the citizens of Massachusetts urge Governor Baker and the Massachusetts General Court to pass legislation banning the tracking and selling of our web history by ISPs who operate in the Commonwealth unless clear consent has been given to do so. Such legislation should also forbid the practice of charging more for internet service if consent is not given.
